Hope Waits

hope
waits
in the wings
secretly wishing for a big break
as the plot unfolds

desire
unchecked
is reckless
ignoring the cosmic order
constructing a plan
masquerading as serendipity
in a costume
ill-fitting and frayed

while patience and trust conspire
to tempt the hands of fate

true instinct
runs
naked
unabashedly
inviting the sun
and the rain
to dance
